...dedicated to the Russian poet Anna Akhmatova.

Her cranium, its bumps and hollows, 
cradles secrets stored beneath, 
neurons firing, never tiring 
of their journeys to belief. 

Thin vibrations mold, embolden, 
prophecies, cunabula 
suffuse the soul, engage the spirit 
of the tortured Akhmatova.

    i'm not familiar with this poet, but i love the way you focus on her cranium and its "secrets stored beneath." that is just so original and refreshing, which is exactly what poetry should be!
